Cartridge myth... or dangerous

I had a friend around the other day, I began to clean a headstamp by rubbing with a rag, he says this could be dangerous as a stactic electricity charge generated may ignite the powder…is this one for Mythbusters. Any ideas??? Cheers

Well, there are thousands and thousands of cartridge collectors who rub their cartridges with a cloth and I’ve never heard one exploding. (cartridge or collector that is ;-) )

Just be carefull with electrical primed cartridges.

Didn’t the Mythbusterstelevision program attempt to ignite cartridges with static electricity?

Just when I thought it was safe to caress, fondle, and rub my cartridges . . . :) :)

Look out Kalifornia!
